      One operationally relevant detail we can use on our models is an
      indication of how close we can leave a car without fouling the
      diverging route. Since 1948 on the Santa Fe derails and clearance
      indicators (see the system standards for distances) have been painted
      orange. I have recently discovered from a copy of the standard sign
      diagram that prior to 10-48, the color for clearance markers and
      derails was white.

      A neat and useful detail.
